  1. Oh, these colors are so fabulous….and the pattern in these leaves are beautiful.

    • Diane says

      Thanks Evelyn!!
      I couldn’t believe how beautiful they were, either.

  2. beautiful captures …
    at first thought the first photo might be artificial, it’s so colorful and the veins so strong …

    • Diane says

      The tree was around the corner from my home. I walked past it with a sack of groceries from the local organic store and was so smitten that I walked back with my camera to capture it. The rest of the tree was pretty much green and so it made it stand out even more. I’m so glad you enjoyed it as much as me.
      Wishing you An Extraordinary Week!!!

  3. Wonderful fall photos. Happy fall!

    • Diane says

      Thank you!! Happy Fall to you too!!!
      Hope your week is truly Extraordinary!

  4. Beautiful. I love the leaves and I love sipping a hot latte while walking in the cool night air!

    • Diane says

      Mmmmm. That sounds perfectly lovely, Barbie!!! I’m looking forward to a walk later, in the crisp of the evening with my husband. No latte though. 😀 But, I do have some cider to heat and spice, along with a slice of his homemade apple pie to enjoy when I return home.

  5. Cyndy says

    GORGEOUS! I’m jealous!

    • Diane says

      Oh Cyndy…does that mean you don’t live in a 4-season place?
      Happy Autumn!

  6. OH how I love the colors of fall. Things are slowly changing colors here.

    • Diane says

      We’re getting frost at night now. I’m loving the colors….not the cold. Brrrr.

  7. Gorgeous photos! I love it! Thanks for sharing-found you through SITS!

    • Diane says

      Thank you Miss Angie! I can’t take much credit….God created it. I just snapped its picture. 😀
      Happy Fall!

  8. Toia says

    Beautiful pictures!! I love how the leaves change colors. Truly Extraordinary!! 🙂

    • Diane says

      Thank you Toia!!
      There’s something magical about the transformation. What’s interesting to me is that we’ve had no frost until yesterday and the colors are stunning.
      Happy Fall!!

  9. Now that’s what Fall should look like!

    • Diane says

      Though only a few have started to color here….the colors are fantastic. Pure happiness.
      Thanks for stopping by Stacie!!!

  10. Love the colors in your pictures. They almost don’t look real!

    Saw you on the SITS blog challenge and your thumbnail picture intrigued me. Hope you have a blessed day!

    • Diane says

      Thanks Stacey! I agree…those leaves aren’t like anything I’ve ever seen before. I feel so blessed to have captured them with my camera.
      May your week be Extraordinary!!!

  11. Beautiful colors! We are a bit further away from fall here, but these pictures are are making me wish it were already here 🙂

    • Diane says

      We are just in the very beginning of Fall. I love when it comes on slowly. Hope it lingers a long time this year. Especially after having such a hot summer.
      Wishing you An Extraordinary Fall!!!
